Pillage The Village at The Mid-Michigan Renaissance Festival 2020

Pillage the Village
How about Pirates and Vikings and Wenches… OH MY… Join us land lubbers in our Tavern for a mead, visit a real life Viking Village and see their daily life. The pint sized pirates can sink a ship or talk to a mermaid. Join this mid-season scallywag shindig with both our sea weathered buccaneers and the fresh faced privateers. Let’s avoid the scurvy, and hard tack! Only the best, or worst depending on your perspective, is allowed in our village!
